OUR STORY

FROM THE SKARA FAMILY TO YOURS – DOBAR TEK!

Skara Smallgoods are a family producer of premium artisan smallgoods, based in South Australian Adelaide Hills.

We pride ourselves in producing a product from paddock to plate, ensuring control and consistency in our processes and products. The products are of the highest quality and as Anthony Skara quotes, “I don’t want to be the biggest, I want to be the best”.

Skara’s journey started July 2007 with a one man show and a dream of producing premium continental charcuterie to the consumer. The dream has flourished, collecting a multitude of awards along the way, employing passionate local people and distribute both locally and nationally.

The humble beginnings of Skara are still a big part of our culture by providing our customers with great personal working relations and attention to detail.

From the Skara family to yours – We truly hope you enjoy and ‘Dobar Tek’ (enjoy your meal!)

WHY SKARA

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE

Products are smoked in traditional brick wood fire smokerooms of yesteryear, giving our products a true smoke flavour, which is only possible with traditional smokerooms, a custom we learnt from our Croatian heritage. Europeans having been smoking their meat in wood fires for centuries.

With flavours influenced from our Croatian heritage, combined with traditionally smoking of products, we are uniquely different.

Products are gluten free, purely meat based and flavoured with spices. Our production team is led by passionate foodie, Anthony Skara who is driven to produce only the best and has mastered the art of producing artisan smallgoods within his 30+ years in the industry.

OUR BRANDS

Skara have developed two brands for the consumer, Skara and Adelaide Hills Fine Foods, which produce over 20 smallgoods products, packed in a number of variations, either in bulk whole, bulk sliced and convenient retail packs.

Beautifully packaged pre-packed charcuterie, a stand out on the supermarket shelf, giving the supermarket a premium upmarket look. Available in individual hang cell units or in shelf ready 8 pack cartons.

Our Skara brand is produced using locally sourced fresh meats and certified free range pork. Whatever volumes of free range pork we are able to source we use within our Skara pure pork based products. Our loyalty to the consumer is that if there is a free range pork label on our branded packet, it is certified free range.

Adelaide Hills Fine Foods branding is produced by Skara. The range consists of two pre-packed retail lines and a large range of bulk packed charcuterie, perfect for delicatessens and the food service industry. A premium artisan product for consumers wanting quality produce and a point of difference.

Adelaide Hills branding is produced from locally sourced South Australian fresh meats. We also produce a selected number of bulk products available in free range, please see our product listing for full product range.

THE FARMERS

To achieve a premium product, Skara understand the importance on sourcing fresh meats. We do this by supporting local, small to medium family farmers and source all our meats within South Australia, some of which are certified and audited Free Range.

Skara commenced negotiations with like-minded farmers several years ago and worked with them through their fee-range farming processes, accreditation and growth in numbers. We value our farmers and have great relationships and hope to continue these relations long term. Our rewards are our farmers rewards.
